The Simpsons Renewed For Two Years

FOX has announced plans to pick up its long-running animated sitcom “The Simpsons” for a twenty-seventh and twenty-eighth season, bringing the series up to a total of 625 episodes.

In a statement issued by FOX, Homer Simpson says: “I’ve outlasted Letterman, Jon Stewart and ‘McDreamy,’ because I have something they don’t: a costly 200-donut-a-day addiction.”

The animated show already holds the title as the longest-running scripted series in TV history, so the new total has no impact on records.

Fox has locked down several renewals for next season with “New Girl,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Last Man on Earth,” “Gotham,” “Empire” and “Sleepy Hollow” all slated to return.
